Nora PT

Nora B, PT | Improving Function Through Play

Nora trained at the University of Delaware, the #1 Doctor of Physical Therapy program in the country, under one of the country’s leading pediatric PT researchers. She is trained in Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI) to Level C, a particularly effective technique for kids with neurological disorders and on an intensive basis, but also for any babies or children who are delayed in meeting milestones. She also specializes in multiple bodywork techniques used frequently to address soft tissue restrictions throughout the body that can lead to torticollis, plagiocephaly, or abnormal crawling or walking patterns.

Nora believes in play-based therapy and treating the whole child using evidence-based practice, building a therapeutic activity using a kiddo’s interest in a specific toy, book, song or piece of equipment.

What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?

Pediatric Physical Therapy addresses any delays or deficits that your child may be confronting in the realm of gross motor development. Babies and children, including very young babies, may have restrictions that limit their ability to perform typical activities, including rolling, sitting and Tummy Time.

Gross motor development typically describes whole-body movements – crawling, walking, running, and jumping, but also includes balance, proprioception, vestibular processing, strength and endurance.

Children are NOT small adults – pediatric physical therapy means modifying all interventions so that your child is playing and often does not know that she is “working.”
